Netline Supplies Its Counter IED System, the C-Guard Reactive Jamming ManPack, to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)

The company has also been awarded a €65 million contract to supply its Vehicular C-Guard System to the Spanish MOD

August 5, 2019. Netline Communications Technologies Ltd. – a leading developer and manufacturer of high-end electronic warfare and spectrum dominance systems for defense forces and homeland security agencies – is supplying its C-Guard Reactive Jamming (RJ) Manpack system to the IDF. The system is already being operated by the IDF, and is also in ongoing use by ground forces in NATO countries, Asia and Africa.

Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), such as roadside bombs activated by radio-controlled devices (namely cell phones), have become a common threat in today’s asymmetric warfare, as they are easy to make. Netline’s reactive jamming system provides frontline forces with a real-time counter-IED solution.

Easily carried into the battlefield, the C-Guard RJ Manpack system detects and prevents IED activation attempts. The system creates a secured zone around the soldiers on the frontline, reacting to real-time situational electronic warfare (EW) threats by both detecting the threat and providing an immediate response of jamming RF signals that are attempting to detonate the IED. The solution’s advantages include superior reactive jamming capabilities, wide coverage, simple operation by an individual soldier to provide protection of personnel within a specific radius, and better overall control of the operational situation, all without requiring any additional hardware.

Netline has also recently secured a €65 million contract with the Spanish Ministry of Defense. In a show of confidence similar to the IDF’s, both in Netline and its advanced jamming capabilities, this is a major contract to supply the C-Guard RJ vehicle system for use in all military corps of the Spanish Armed Forces, due to begin in December 2019.  

“We are proud that the IDF and the Spanish MOD have chosen our life-saving systems to protect their forces in a variety of operational missions,” says Yallon Bahat, CEO of Netline. “For us, this is further evidence that our strategic decision to invest in the development of high-end EW technologies is bearing fruit. We have succeeded in bringing the message of EW defensive measures to the ground tactical arena, and will continue to invest in advanced generations to provide solutions for future threats in this field.”

    Hmm, how small can you make a HARM missile?

      I was thinking of the rise of laser triggered IEDs or good old copper line and a spotter. Or even more grim, suicide bombers just waiting with a dead man switch.

    Specs on the website are almost non-existent. No way I’d strap that thing on without first seeing the “radiation safety” (sic) numbers. The freqs coverage in the specs doesn’t match the blurb. Also wondering how it feels wearing it when it heats up enough to kick on the two cooling fans…

    • EODFish says:

      I am curious what other CREW vendor you have seen that lists extensive stats on the website.

      • Mike Nomad says:

        I didn’t ask for “extensive stats,” which if present still wouldn’t address the mis-match w/r/t coverage as stated…

        They don’t have to give away The Crown Jewels to address MPE-related numbers, nor external temperature(s) reached. For that matter, they don’t even go so far as to include overall dimensions or weight. Hardly “extensive stats.”

        I don’t know what you mean by a “CREW vendor website.” My baseline for information available via website for field electronics is Harris.
